Trump’s Mockery of Biden for Wearing a Mask Will Backfire

Donald Trump aka Cadet Bone Spurs likes to portray himself as a tough guy; in rallies he frequently poses with his tiny fists clenched as if he was a prizefighter ready to take on all comers.

Anyone who hasn’t binged on Kool-Aid knows that he is a sniveling coward who’s subservient to real tough guy dictators like Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un. But his tough guy act works with his evangelical base who sees him as Jesus Christ the action hero.

Trump refuses to consistently wear a mask in public, even though as a morbidly obese septuagenarian with heart problems he is particularly susceptible to COVID. He thinks he’s being macho by not wearing a mask in a pandemic, and he mocks politicians and reporters who do so.

At a campaign rally crowd in Pennsylvania Trump mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask:

“But did you ever see a man that likes a mask as much as him? He makes a speech, and he always has it – not always, but a lot of times, he has it hanging down. Because you know what, it gives him a feeling of security.”

Mocking Biden for wearing a mask makes as much sense as mocking him for driving his Camaro without wearing a seat belt. Wearing a mask is an excellent defense against the coronavirus that has killed more than 190,000 Americans, just as wearing a seat belt is an excellent defense from dying in traffic accidents that kill hundreds of thousands each year.

Biden isn’t an idiot and that’s why he wears a mask in public and wears a seat belt when cruising around in his Camaro.

Trump is going to be clenching his tiny fists in rage on November 3 when Americans tired of his macho posturing and idiotic behavior kick him to the curb.

Trump Cultists Willing to Sacrifice the Elderly and Open the Economy in the Middle of Coronavirus Pandemic to Help Him Win Reelection

Cult leaders are usually young, virile, eloquent and handsome men who project power and authority and every smooth word they utter is accepted as Gospel by their followers.

Donald Trump is neither young nor virile and his face with a bulbous nose, sphincter-shaped mouth and orange complexion is repulsive and frightening but every incoherent and nonsensical statement that he utters is accepted as Gospel by his white evangelical sycophants.

Having a cult leader as commander-in-chief during a time of peace and prosperity was unnerving and unsettling, but having Trump in charge during a pandemic is absolutely horrifying.

Trump followers are effectively cult members and they won’t be swayed from supporting their Dear Leader for any reason. Before they became MAGA nutjobs white evangelicals were already conditioned to accept the ranting and ravings of televangelists as the Gospel, therefore it’s not surprising that they accept everything their false Messiah says as Gospel regardless how fantastical and incoherent his comments may appear to a normal person.

During a crisis cult members depend upon and trust their cult leader more than ever, and they are willing to open the economy at the urging of their leader in the middle of a pandemic. They are more than willing to sacrifice the elderly and other vulnerable citizens in order to save the economy and help the reelection prospects of their Messiah.

For Trump cultists what’s good for Trump is good for the country and if you challenge his medically unsound policies you are fighting against God.

It’s clear that we are fighting the coronavirus as well as the more insidious infection of Trumpism. Things will not return to any semblance of normalcy until with defeat Trumpism and COVID-19

The Coronavirus Won’t Disappear Until Donald Trump Disappears

The coronavirus pandemic has exposed the cluelessness and fecklessness of Donald Trump. The American public doesn’t expect our president to be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon, but they do expect him to have the humility and modicum of intelligence to defer to physicians and scientists during a pandemic. The president should serve as the comforter-in-charge by making frequent press conferences to demonstrate that he’s on top of the crisis, and the public doesn’t have to worry because he’s following the advice of his medical team.

Trump has utterly failed in his role as comforter-in chief and most Americans are scared to death with a racist buffoon in charge during a pandemic. Only his evangelical base is comforted by the contradictory statements and tweets emanating from the White House.

A con artist learns to speak the lexicon that appeals to his marks, and Trump is an expert speaking the language of evangelicals. During the beginning of the pandemic Trump insisted that the disease was contained and that it was not a threat. “It’s going to disappear”, he told the American public on February 28th. “One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.” These ignorant words were received gratefully by evangelicals who value faith over science and empirical facts.

Rational Americans know that the virus isn’t eradicated or slowed down by thoughts, prayers and miracles. Without practical measures to slow it down, covid-19 will continue to spread exponentially for months. The spread can be slowed down if we practice good hygiene, avoid public spaces and generally limit our movement.

This pandemic may last for many more months, it’s imperative that we kick the racist buffoon out of office in November. Joe Biden isn’t perfect by any means, but he isn’t a megalomaniac narcissist, and he can see us through this pandemic.
